El Monte is located at the end of the Santa Fe Trail and gained its fame in the late 1700s and early 1800s as a place of rest for weary soldiers and missionaries. The fertile land El Monte stands on was always home to willows, alders, grapevines and walnut groves, nestled between the San Gabriel and Rio Hondo Rivers. Residents today still boast to the ability to grow almost anything you can imagine. Today, El Monte is home to a large Latino population and about 57% of its residents live in rental properties, providing ample opportunity for those looking to invest in the real estate market.
